Honestly there was nothing worth seeing at Belfast.

Honestly there was nothing worth seeing at Belfast. We didn't visit Titanic Museum so can't comment about that. Giant's Causeway was a huge tourist trap, people need to pay 12 euros entrance fee just to get in visitors centre for souvenirs / fast food. And there was nothing spectacular about the rocky beach. It was very crowded and just a rocky waterfront. We also went to Dark Hedges and it was OK. City murals were a joke we didn't even notice when our coach drove pass them. Read Less

Nice drive through the countryside to a photo stop at the rope bridge and coastline. Simply not enough time at the Giants Causeway and quite crowded. The guide gave us many ideas of what we could do but in reality you didn't have time to do much at all except have a look. Quite spectacular the extent of it. There is a bus to take you down and back. A lot of people walk down and take the bus back. I'd knocked my knee the day before and could hardly bend my leg so had no choice but to take the bus back. After a look at the Causeway I got in line and waited over half an hour to get a bus back. They have 2 smaller buses going up and back, not nearly enough for all the visitors. Of course the doors were shut when I was second in line and had to wait for the buses to return making me about 5-10 mins late for my tour bus. We also stopped at Dunluce Castle ruins for a photo before returning to the ship. Read Less

we took a very quick bus tour through town and down to the Giants Causeway. We had ample time to see the causeway, however the back of a bus is not the best way to enjoy the scenic coastal drive back to Belfast.

I rated this tour poor because they did not deliver what they promised. We bought this through Viator but the operator was Odyssey Tours I selected this tour because the claimed to go to carrick-a-rede rope bridge and giant's causeway on a minibus which would make getting off and on easy. They showed up with a massive bus that was almost full and announced that due to the schedule we would not be going to the bridge and tried to convince us we really didn't want to go there anyway but we would see it. Seeing it was from an overlook miles away. The Giant's Causeway was great but we had many other options to get there if the bridge wasn't an option. The tour ened with a depressing drive through Belfast "Peace Wall" where we learned that they still don't like each other. Read Less

A must see in Ireland. It is incredible. A bit of walking and lots of walking on uneven surfaces if that is an issue. So worth the effort.

Belfast, Northern Ireland: We pre-arranged a ($30gbp) tour to Giant’s Causeway from irishtourtickets.com. We took the 10:30 Express tour as DW is not an early riser. Our guide Ian was prompt and we were on our way on time without a stop at the town center as our ship filled the tour with Viator bookings. There was an 8:30 tour for $35gbp which was 8 hours available as well. Ian had a lot of stories and antidotes so the ride did not seem very long. We had about 90 minutes to explore the causeway and would of like more. We also stopped at Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge, Dunluce castle, and the peace wall for a photo op. The driver’s emotion and passion could be felt as he tried to explain the conflict between the Protestants and the Catholics of years past. He promised and delivered us back to the ship 1 hour before sail-away. Read Less

We booked this excursion, Giants Causeway Tour from Belfast Port, through Viator. It was less expensive that the tour offered through Princess and you had enough time to cross the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge (the Princess tour offered only a photo stop there). I believe it was operated by Odyssey Tours. Our guide was excellent. The Causeway was amazing to see and the tour guide was knowledgable about some of the history of Belfast. On the way back, we drove through some of the areas that are still gated and have high fences from recent history. The rope bridge was a fun excursion - we definitely got our 10,000+ steps that day!

Amazing experience. To truly get the best of this venue, be mobile and in good shape to take the two mile walk. The little cafe at the visitors center was excellent. They had good food at affordable prices with very efficient service.

The giant's causeway was amazing - I hadn't appreciated quite how dramatic/spectacular it would be, nor that you can clamber all over it. Plus we had amazing weather for it too. We also crossed the Carrick-A-Rede rope bridge afterward which really was the cherry on the cake. The scenery was all so stunning that even though I'm British and Belfast is in the UK, I kept feeling like I was abroad. Read Less

The Giant's Causeway was a good experience and impressive. The tour was so rushed we had to run to get back in time. Our guide did not bother reserving tickets for us to go across the Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge and the operators told everyone that each tour guide group KNOWS if they do not reserve tickets then there will be NONE available. There was not a single ticket left. We walked down anyway hoping for a miracle and a kind man standing off to the side said he was not going to use his tickets because he's been over the bridge a hundred times and gave us his tickets! Otherwise we would not have experienced it nor went over to the island. It was a great walk and beautiful view. Thank you kind stranger. Read Less

This is a breathtaking 7 hours of magnificent Northern Ireland coastal scenery!. I had no idea Ireland had such crystal clear water and so many sandy beaches! We visited Dunlace Castle, the Giants Causeway (amazing natural basalt formations), and walked across the Carrick-a-Rope bridge. Our driver also took us into Belfast to see the murals of the "troubles" and gave us a history lesson on the oppression of the Northern Irish. Did you know that the gates between the Protestant and Catholic sections of the city are still locked each night? Read Less
